A motorist tried to drive a car down the front steps of Lidl in Mallow today only to get stuck halfway.
The back end of the car rose as the vehicle began to descend and the front of the car became wedged in a step thanks to the deep steps at the Lidl on Park Road, Mallow.
Lidl shoppers got more than they bargained for as the bizarre incident unfolded before their eyes while they browsed among the aisles and paid for their shopping at the busy store.
The car was left on the steps as the driver decided their next move.
Speaking to The Echo, local Gardaí said they were aware of the incident, while the Fire Brigade were not called upon to assist in moving the vehicle from the steps.
